"We are seeking to terminate the appalling arrangement between Planned Parenthood and the University of Wisconsin, under which UW has provided faculty members to serve as abortionists at Planned Parenthood's abortion-only facility in Madison." Representative Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) told committee members at the Capitol when testifying in favor of Senate Bill 154.

Dr. Robert Golden, Dean of UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, testified against the legislation. "Simply put, the legislation before you is a serious threat to the future of our OGBYN residency training program. If the bill is passed, the program will be forced to become non-compliant with the national accreditation requirements."

On October 17, 2017, the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services held an executive session followed by a public hearing at the Capitol. Watch the full hearing: https://shar.es/1ProIQ
